Svensson brothers/sister Hovmantorp, Sweden to Toledo

I am looking for the following siblings. All of them lived in Toledo at one time or another and I am assuming that there are probably descendants there today with whom I would like to have contact.

ERNST JULIUS SVENSSON (b. 3 April 1885, Hovmantorp) moved to Ljuder 6 May 1901. He left Ljuder in 1904 for America, sailing on the Baltic from Liverpool, England to New York, arriving there 5 August 1904. Ernst listed his uncle Andrew Magnuson, 118 N School Street in Stillwater, MN as the relative he intended to join. At some time he moved to Toledo as in 1912 he was living at 924 Rex when his brother Knut arrived. While in 1914 he was living at 1947 Erie Street when his half-brother Klas listed Ernst as the relative he was joining in America. (TOLEDO, OH, US)

KNUT EMANUEL SVENSSON (b. 12 January 1891, Hovmantorp) is said to have moved to Ekeberga 6 May 1905 but he could not be found in their records. He left Sweden in 1912, sailing from Copenhagen on the Oscar II bound for New York where he arrived 17 October 1912. Knut listed his brother Ernst in Toledo as his contact in America. (TOLEDO, OH, US)

KLAS VILHELM HENRIK SVENSSON (b. 18 February 1896, Hovmantorp) moved to North America 19 July 1914. He sailed from Malmö on 6 August 1914 destined for New York, contract # 1914:1539:8266. Klas sailed on the United States from Copenhagen to New York, arriving there 18 August 1914. He showed his brother Ernst in Toledo as the relative that he was coming to join. (TOLEDO, OH, US)

AGDA BERTA ELISABET SVENSSON (b. 12 June 1909, Hovmantorp, d.c. September 1989, Toledo, OH) moved to North America 10 November 1928 leaving from Göteborg on 16 November 1928 with Toledo shown as her final destination, source number 124:1119:33156. She may have married an Andrew Schroer (b. 13 July 1902, d. April 1981, Saint Petersburg, FL).

Thank you for any help that you might give me. There are other siblings but most appear to have stayed in Sweden except for one who went to Nye, WI. This would be CARL ALBIN SVENSSON.
